Bottomless Brunch = Death

Sometimes in life, everything comes together to make a perfect day of drinking. St Patrick’s Day, on a Saturday with the last day of the Six Nations. Drinking Nirvana. We started things off by doing a bottomless brunch in front of the Scotland vs. Italy game. Coming to think of it, this was a poor decision as I managed to drain about 3 bottles of Prosecco in 2 hours. Next, we headed back to Murray’s house and continued the bevving. Given that I was already slurring my words, I thought I’d only do one unique beer otherwise there’d be no chance of remembering it.

Pint No. 88

What? – Haacht/Marks & Spencer, Belgian Lager

Where? – Murray and Shea’s Gaff, Putney

When? – Saturday 17th March 2018

All there was available to me that hadn’t been previously supped was a can of M&S own brand Belgian lager. Understandably, I was sceptical, though it wasn’t quite as bad as I’d feared. Brewed by Haacht in Beligium, it was far superior to any supermarket home-brand beer I’d ever had in the past and probably is preferable to the likes of Carling and Fosters. At a push and with limited  alternatives I’d even choose this again.

Overall score: 2/5

Unfortunately, England rounded off their Six Nations with a toilet performance against Ireland which saw them finish 5th in the table. From that point on, my memories are hazy at best.
